If you thought this summer would pass without a transfer saga with Jadon Sancho - you were wrong! Not only will there be soap operas, but we will watch them in several parts. The German Bild came out with information that was later confirmed by the well-known Italian insider Fabrizio Romano that Manchester United and Sancho's agents reached an agreement on personal terms of cooperation and a contract was prepared until June 2026.
His salary will be around 15,000,000 euros, which would make him one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League. That is twice as much as what he earns in Dortmund at the moment - 7,700,000 euros. Romano claims that Sancho never made a problem about the transfer to Old Trafford, which means that now it is only necessary for the clubs to find compensation.
Which will not be easy at all, just like last summer when they negotiated for a long time. Namely, Dortmund has already rejected the first official offer from Manchester for 70,000,000 euros, because they were asking for far more money!
Although the price they are looking for in Westphalia "dropped" to 95,000,000 euros, the winner of the domestic cup is also asking for bonuses in the amount of close to 30,000,000 euros, which should round off the whole deal to around 130,000,000 European banknotes.
Sancho and Rashford
Let us remind you, a year ago, Dortmund did not lower the limit below 150,000,000 euros. Bild also claims that they are aware of Jadon Sancho's negotiating position in Dortmund and that he has already agreed on the personal terms of cooperation, but they believe in Westphalia that they can extract even more money.
It seems unrealistic, but the German daily mentions that Chelsea is also in the game for Sancho's signature, since Thomas Tuchel is a great admirer of the quality of the English national team player. Sancho still has a long-standing friendship with United thanks to Marcus Rashford, who is believed to be his best friend since childhood.
Lately, there have been loud speculations about Sancho's transfer to Old Trafford, especially since Paul Pogba said something during the joint shooting of an advertisement for the famous Pepsi brand, so that the job could really happen.
Now the famous madness starts until the transfer finally happens or fails again ... United will have to strengthen the team if they want to be more competitive next season. Sancho could be one part of Soslkjaer's new plan
